I have an opportunity to purchase a second hand Raymarine

Customer Question

I have an opportunity to purchase a second hand Raymarine Raytheon model R520 (with radar) still in the box which I intend to install on a 39 ft. sailing yacht. Does this unit come with a built in GPS? What should I be aware of when purchasing such a unit.
Thank you

Hi Good morning John,

The only real thing to be concerned about is if it works.

Make sure the unit will power on before purchase;-)

This is a pretty durable unit but if the original owner accidentally hooked it up incorrectly it could have electronic damage.

Other than that it should be fine, also make sure it doesn't appear to have any water damage.

This one doesn't have a GPS built in but does have radar.

I wish you the best with your purchase and if you have any further questions please feel free to ask me.

Please rate kindly before you go and then if you need me further, you can simply reply to me for anything else me have on this unit.

Thank you and have a great day John!

Tech Michael
